Constance Rhodes is the founder and director of FINDINGbalance, an organization dedicated to eating, image, and lifestyle management issues. She is also the author of Life Inside the “Thin” Cage: A Personal Look into the Hidden World of the Chronic Dieter. A former marketing director for Sparrow Records, a division of EMI Music, Constance was led to pursue this compilation by her appreciation for the work of contemporary musicians.
A word from author Constance Rhodes, on her book, Life Inside the Thin Cage:
"I don't have an eating disorder - I just watch what I eat..."
These were the words I repeated time and again to anyone who suggested that I was overly concerned with weight and dieting. Without my realizing it, what had begun as an earnest effort to lose a few college pounds turned into a non-stop obsessive lifestyle that lasted 10 years before I finally admitted to myself that my approach to food was unhealthy. Once I started seeking help, I came to understand that few people took my form of disordered eating to be a serious concern. This made it difficult to find the help and encouragement I needed. Thankfully, I was able to connect with a counselor who took the focus off of the “what” of my dieting practices, to explore the “why” behind them. This was a huge turning point for me, and one that I feel compelled to share with others.
This book gives voice to the millions of women who struggle daily to accept their bodies as they are. May you find hope in its pages.
